Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut, currently busy with her movie “Emergency,” recently shared her thoughts on the art of filmmaking and how the movie made her understand the nuances of storytelling. According to her, “a film makes a maker” and it’s not the other way around.

‘Emergency’ is Kangana’s second director after ‘Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi’ and the actress spares no effort to make the film a gripping watch.

Taking to her Instagram, Kangana shared a photo of herself letting someone off-camera know about a particular close-up/mid-close-up.

Captioning the image, she wrote: “Filmmaking is a good mix of preparation, practice and spontaneity. That’s why it can be the most difficult or the easiest thing to do, it depends how efficiently you can be stiff and smooth at the same time.”

She went on to share that despite all the preparation, a story or sequence may require dropping everything that was part of the preparation and starting over with a different approach, “If you know how to prepare hard to shoot what needs to be shot again at the last moment you tear down that mental structure/roadmap/blue print and are free to come up with something completely different based on your instincts then you know how to make a movie….And if you know how to make a movie you will actually know that you can’t make a movie.”

According to her, the term filmmaker is nothing but a myth because a story finds its true expression and the director is just a vehicle for the story.

“The filmmaker is a myth, there is no such thing. If anything, a movie makes a creator because the story has its own seed and soul that finds expression and manifests and self- saying director simply watches puzzled, enchanted as she morphs into a role she has to play #setstories #Emergency.”
